Greg Zipadelli is on the entry list as the crew chief of the No. 4 Stewart-Haas Racing Ford for Sunday’s YellaWood 500 at Talladega Superspeedway. Zipadelli will fill in for Rodney Childers, who is serving a one-race suspension for the No. 4 car having two lug nuts not secure in post-race inspection at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. A $20,000 fine will also accompany that penalty when those announcements are made by NASCAR later.
Longtime SHR hand Tony Gibson shifts over to competition director for the weekend on all four cars for the organization.
Zipadelli has 34 career Cup Series victories and two championships as a crew chief, all but one of those coming with three-time champion Tony Stewart.
